The Francie’s Family 5K run/walk was created to honor Francie Billotti-Wood and her family, offer solace and support for those who loved them, and build the spirit of the community that they called home. The goal was never to raise money, but after the great success of the 2010 inaugural race, it became apparent that through the generosity of those who knew and loved the Billotti-Wood Family, we in turn, had an opportunity to further support the Middletown Community Family.
